Kate Dyer BA (Hons), MBACP
Sometimes the challenges we face in life can leave us feeling overwhelmed, isolated or stuck. This can interfere with our daily lives leading to difficulties such as anxiety, depression and relationship problems. Seeking support through counselling can be the first step in making sense of our difficulties through a relationship that allows you to feel truly heard, valued and supported. My aim is to provide a warm, confidential space, free of judgement, where we can explore what is happening for you right now and support you to make a positive difference to your wellbeing.
As an integrative counsellor, I combine humanistic and psychodynamic perspectives to tailor therapy to your individual benefit. With several years experience in practice, I work from a relational approach, understanding that often the emotional difficulties we face have their origins in our earliest experience of relationships and continue to be problematic throughout life, behind difficulties including poor self-esteem, anxiety and low mood. Through my commitment to working with compassion, acceptance and trust, I aim to offer a therapeutic relationship with you that can offer insight and awareness, allowing you the opportunity to make changes to past patterns, leading to a fulfilling future and greater wellbeing.
Life can be really hard sometimes and talking to friends and family isn't always an option, while struggling alone seems unbearable. Whatever your difficulty I am here to listen. I offer a safe and welcoming space for you to openly share what you are experiencing, helping you process the thoughts and feelings behind your difficulty.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
